MOURN are a group of Catalonian teenage wunderkinds making authentically great guitar-based music in an era when it’s considered almost unfashionable. Since their 2014 self-titled debut, the band has faced upsetting circumstances, both personally and professionally, that no artist should have to deal with, especially so early in what promises to be a long and fruitful career. When dealing with such a young band, you worry about the effects of early hype on their future; however, as the band’s 2016 sophomore release ‘Ha, Ha, He!‘ proved, we never needed to worry about MOURN’s path to becoming a great band – they already were one.
Though MOURN have continued their speedy ascent from local curiosity into an international band on the rise, there have been some unfortunate setbacks for the young band. A legal dispute with their previous Spanish label forbade them from touring, forcing them to remain absent or turn away all opportunities brought forth by the 2016 release of their fantastic 2nd LP. Now with their legal troubles finally behind them, MOURN return to the United States for a string of dates across the country with more energy than ever, ready to show the world what we’ve all been denied.
To mark their triumphant return, Captured Tracks is proud to release the digital/cassette EP ‘Over The Wall’ to coincide with the tour. Featuring an unreleased track and four covers by various heroes and influences that belie the band member’s ages (The Replacements, Husker Du, The Sound, and Echo & The Bunnymen), ‘Over The Wall’ is yet another raging set of songs that prove that MOURN cannot be held back and are not to be missed on this rare American tour. MOURN are finally free!
